Chris Mooney is the author of "The Republican Brain: The Science of Why They Deny Science -- and Reality," and of the 2005 New York Times bestseller, "The Republican War on Science." Scientific American calls Mooney "one of the few journalists in the country who specialize in the now dangerous intersection of science and politics." Mooney also hosts the "Point of Inquiry" podcast, writes the "Intersection" blog for Science Progress, and has written for Mother Jones, American Prospect, Harper's, The Washington Post, USA Today, and Slate.

In "The Republican Brain," Mooney explores brain scans, polls, and psychology experiments to explain why conservatives today believe more wrong things; appear more likely than Democrats to oppose new ideas and less likely to change their beliefs in the face of new facts; and sometimes respond to compelling evidence by doubling down on their current beliefs.

Host and Producer of Rag Radio: Thorne Dreyer; Engineer and Co-Producer: Tracey Schulz. Rag Radio ( is produced in the studios of KOOP 91.7-FM, an all-volunteer, cooperatively-run community radio station in Austin, Texas, in association with The Rag Blog ( and the New Journalism Project, a Texas 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Running time: 56:37.
